Serene, Minimalist Bedroom, HGTV

HGTV caught up with Tara Benet about her latest project, a minimalist bedroom in a New York City highrise, and asked the painter turned interior designer how she tackled the challenges of meeting a “less is more” standard without leaving out important features. “The large floor-to-ceiling windows left us with very little wall space for my client’s furniture and TV,” said Benet, who turned the limitation into a feature by placing a floor mirror in the room’s corner, obscuring the structural column and opening up that entire half of the room. Benet mounted a TV above the client’s bronze and walnut dresser, while a large, calming art print anchors the room from its place over the head of the bed.
